Plowing Into The Field Of Love is the third album from Copenhagen’s Iceage. It is new, bold and forceful. Channeling the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship, Plowing Into The Field of Love features piano, mandolin, viola and organ atop Johan Suurballe-Wieth’s razor-sharp guitars and the lolloping, synchronized rhythm section of Jacob Tvilling Pless and Dan Kjær Nielsen. The record has a clear, uncompressed sound, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s desperate vocals are out front, nakedly accountable for the words.

On this album, Rønnenfelt sings of what it is like to be out in the world, dizzy with its offerings, perched on a plateau of false confidence, bliss, fantasy and delirious self-denial. The autobiographical “Forever,” for which Iceage have shared the video today, begins with a pretty repetitive motif over the words, “I always had the sense that I was split in two,” and climaxes with a sunburst of horns recalling South African spiritual jazz great Mongezi Feza: “If I could dive into the other, I’d lose myself forever.” At the other extreme, the album evokes a sort of euphoria, especially in the unexpectedly upbeat country number “The Lord’s Favorite.” Yet desperation and loss lurks behind. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds. The reference points are wildly varied, but the sound is uniquely and darkly Iceage as the record fights with itself, in the story it tells, and the sound it makes. It is not, however, a remotely difficult record. It is the anthemic sound of a band in motion, unafraid of change, filled with curiosity, musicality and ambition.

The young Detroit-born producer & DJ has made waves early in his career with 2 amazing releases on Omar-S' underground techno taste making label FXHE. Resident Advisor recently crowned him the new school of house music, and has a hotly anticipated 12'' releasing soon on London based The Trilogy Tapes.

Having first emerged on the Wild Oats released Laygo My Faygo as part of NSNT PRJCT alongside Kyle Hall in 2010, Manuel Gonzales has found his own voice over the past twelve months. Resurfacing under the M GUN banner, Gonzales made an intensely rewarding full debut on Hall's label with the cavernous deconstruction of techno that was Harmnear, and has subsequently struck alliances with some of the UK's more interesting labels.

Released as 2012 drew to a close, The Upstairs Apt EP for Semtek's Don't Be Afraid was equally a statement of the label's intent to escape the mundane trappings of many a current UK house operation and another compelling display of Gonzales' obvious talent. A further mark of the Detroit-based producer's ascendancy arrives with The Near Future EP on Will Bankhead's The Trilogy Tapes label, turning out twenty minutes of wayward sonics that build upon his burgeoning reputation as much more than a one-dimensional house and techno producer.
